- Brian Carpenter of Rhinelander recently caught his biggest Northern Pike of the season at an area lake. Using a 5" sucker minnow for bait, Brian caught this 26-incher. He's keeping this beauty for a great meal.
St. Germain's Dan English took his wife and grandchildren out on Lake Carroll. Dan hauled in this HUGE 30 1/2 inch Northern. It weighed 5 pounds. He was using a shiner on a tip-up. This catch is also being prepared for an upcoming supper.
And 16-year old Katie Koppa is a student at Lakeland. While fishing with her boyfriend and dad at an area lake, she landed her first Northern Pike - 19 inches. I'm told this has been converted into Fish patties for the next big meal.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
